UPDATE 5: Drywall
Walls Go Up in the Kitchen & Living Room
Drywall goes up in this Minnetonka whole house remodel! We have many spaces to tackle, and the work will vary slightly from room to room based on the design specifications for each space. The drywall installation in the kitchen and the living room around the windows accommodates wood casings (trim). The widened opening between the kitchen and living room won’t have trim, so we’ll use different drywall techniques in this area. Once the walls are installed, taped, mudded, sanded, and primed, we’ll move on to trim carpentry and painting.
Building Walls for the Primary Bedroom, Walk-in Closet, and En Suite Bath
Upstairs we’re drywalling the framing to create a wall between the primary suite and the new en suite bath and walk-in closet. In the bathroom, the shower walls get material designed for wet conditions painted with RedGuard before tiling. The RedGuard creates a waterproof barrier under the tile. It also expands and contracts to prevent the tile from developing cracks. Niches in the wall above the vanity allow for recessed medicine cabinets.
